SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 8/10
I ranked it at #87 on my favorite songs of 1950, so I can agree with that verdict.

You have 87 songs from 1950 that get an 8 or higher?

That's hard to believe. That's a lot more than I have. There's lots of sevens in my top 100.

For those who don't read the review, the bass singer in this group, who sings lead on this record, is Ira Mumford, brother of Gene Mumford.

It's a decent enough Ravensish performance. I have it as a 7
